Information on Peridot:
The vivid green of the peridot, with just a slight hint of gold, is the ideal gemstone color to go with that light summer wardrobe. No wonder – since the peridot is the gemstone of the summer month of August.
The peridot is an ancient gemstone, and one, which was very popular again in the Georgian and Victorian period. It can be found in Egyptian jewelry from the early 2nd millennium B.C. The stones used at that time came from a deposit on a small volcanic island in the Red Sea, some 45 miles off the Egyptian coast at Aswan.
The Earrings are a pendant style and would have been worn for formal occasions, in this time dinner was a formal occasion.
The earrings are 1 1/4 inches long and 1/2 of an inch wide. They are in excellent condition and are post back with replaced gold ear nuts.
